Critic Reviews of "The Night Of The Hunter"Michael Wilmington Chicago TribuneOctober 14, 2014
One of the great movie horror tales, with one of the greatest of all movie villains.Dave Kehr Chicago ReaderAugust 28, 2007
Ultimately the source of its style and power is mysterious -- it is a film without precedents, and without any real equalsVariety Staff VarietyAugust 28, 2007
This start for Gregory as producer and Laughton as director is rich in promise but the completed product, bewitching at times, loses sustained drive via too many offbeat touches that have a misty effect.Bosley Crowther New York TimesMarch 25, 2006
All this has been crisply compacted into clear screen drama by the late James Agee and it is put forth under the direction of Mr. Laughton in stark, rigid visual terms.Tom Huddleston Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
It's the most haunted and dreamlike of all American films, a gothic backwoods ramble with the Devil at its heels.Tim Brayton Antagony & EcstasyDecember 04, 2016
A magnificent example of a movie doing what movies do best: capturing emotions on film and presenting a feverish, imaginative state with the tactile quality of the real.Wendy Ide Times (UK)October 05, 2015
It's overwrought and lurid; the story is grotesque and so are the characters. It's unlike anything else before and since. And that is why this strident psychological horror stands up now as one of the great pieces of American genre cinema.Josh Larsen LarsenOnFilmOctober 28, 2014
Mitchum is a dreamily terrifying presence, partly because he's filmed in menacing silhouette a good quarter of the time.David Sterritt Christian Science MonitorOctober 14, 2014
Mitchum gives one of cinema's greatest performances as a demented man who's one part preacher, one part murderer, and totally determined to track down a stash of stolen loot in the possession of two kids.Graham Young Birmingham MailOctober 10, 2014
A classic that is beautifully restored to life, successfully mixing lightness and humour in a dark film that would even have Frankenstein's monster running for cover.Matt BrunsonApril 18, 2014
A unique blend of fractured fairy tale, Southern gothic grisliness and striking German expressionism, it also has some pitch-black humor thrown in for good measure.
